5 | My current two favourite podcasts: this one & this one

6 | Despite being an aficionado of adaptogenic herbs, I frankly am not the most habitual at consuming them. I use as I need or feel fit. But, this blend from Sun Potion has been my daily go-to in warm nut milk. The slight spiciness of the blend yields itself to also being a digestive, as the. I also appreciate it as an homage to the lineage of traditional Mayan & Aztec cacao drinks in the current time where seemingly everything is pre-sweetened.

If you have been thinking of investing in a Sun Potion product, I highly recommend it. It's a bang-for-your-buck, so to speak, since the blend also has other adaptogens such as mucuna pruriens for mood support; moringa for energy & digestion; and ashwagandha & reishi for anxiety relief just to name a few. If you are having issues with autoimmunity, however, I suggest skipping it since it does have nightshades (cayenne pepper and ashwagandha).

As I still float amidst a million cloud nines from last week’s NYC book launch party at the Rizzoli Bookstore,I want to thank you all. Thank you to each of you for not only buying the book but also bringing it to life. As I said at the launch, we created this book together. It wouldn’t have happened without this community of The Thirlby. Thank you, thank you! If you’ve been enjoying the book, I’d appreciate it endlessly if you could please take a minute to leave a review on the Amazon page. There’s a surprise coming for those who leave one I’m excited to share soon!
